Hot Organic Squash Blossom Recipes for a Fun and Festive Dish

Check at the farmer’s market for squash blossoms. They are a fresh savory treat waiting to happen in your kitchen! Here are a few squash blossom recipes I like. The Barefoot Kitchen Witch shares a great squashblossom hushpuppy recipe as well:

Just add any kind of flour (I think gluten-free rice flour works well), with an egg batter and fry the squash blossoms with cheese. The pairing possibilities of this dish are delightful… Spicy toppings work well with squash blossoms. Salsa, or spicy sauce, a dash of hot chili pepper, or just fresh diced tomatoes and cilantro make lovely accompaniments. These luscious edible flowers are a true summer treat when paired with a fresh organic fruit “fresca” drink.
